About me

The primary focus of Dale’s practice is helping families who have suffered the life-altering effects of a serious injury or tragic death caused by trucking or auto accidents, defective products, or medical negligence.


Dale’s trial work has resulted in Larry King featuring him on Larry King Live. One of Dale’s multi-million dollar trial victories was the subject of the book, Dark Obsession by Peter Meyer, published in four languages.


Dale is also a respected educator. In 1980 Baylor Law School asked Dale to create a course to teach the law students how to properly handle serious personal injury matters. He has now taught Personal Injury Trial Law to more than 4000 Baylor Law students over the last 32 years. The graduating seniors have honored Dale by selecting him to give their commencement address at five law school graduations.


Three of Dale’s multi-million dollar verdicts resulted in his closing arguments being recorded by Million Dollar Arguments and made available to attorneys throughout the nation as teaching aids.


Dale was also selected by the Texas Trial Lawyers Association to be the Editor-in-Chief of their statewide publication, Trial Lawyer Forum from 1987-1991.
